Now that the snow's finally arrived, I find myself yet again without a car to use, as my Bimmer is completely useless in this weather. Run flat low profiles & snow & Ice equals 0 traction & a bent car, so I've been looking on Autotrader for a 4x4. I've only got about £1,500 - £2k to spend on it though as it'll end up sitting in the garage for the other 9 months of the year. Anyway, I've been looking at what I can get, and I quite fancy a Freelander. Seems like a good car, and for the money I want to spend I seem to be able to get a 1998 - 2002 1.8 with service history, and around 50 - 90k on the clock. However, I know shit all about motors. So do any of you mechanical types know if this is a good idea, or would I be wasting my dosh?
